Sketch from the past: Pirlouit/ Peewit

pirlouit sketch 00, Soft clay sketch of pirlouitSometimes a commission just never works out. This is one of those time. Several years ago I was contacted to make a 4" figure of Pirlouit (Peewit if you're in the states) for a client. I got as far as this sketch before abandoning the project. That project taught me the importance of making a contract and NEVER work on spec.
Lesson learned, experience get, bussiness skill level up.

Zbrush Sculpting - Gray Elf 02

More and more sculptor are now moving to a digital medium. With the advancement in 3d printing technology, that is a natural progression. Still the basic skill sets are the same, just the medium changes. Traditional and digital sculptors are still sculptors and the best thing is, we can all learn from one another.
In this video youtube user zbro z demonstrate how to sculpt the elf body in zbrush. I like this because I used a similar method in sculpting the torso. Don't forget to check out his other videos on the channel.

Happy sculpting!

Side project: SIC Denpa Hime head sculpt

Denpa Hime custom SIC head sculpt for TACKLE figure This is a side project of mine. I always like the design of SIC figures. But the head sculpt of Tackle leaves something to be desired. So I made a bishoujo style head sculpt for it. I called it Denpa Hime (electric wave princess). I based it on the appearance of Tackle in the Decade Movie. If you thought that the face looked similar with a certain character from One piece, that was no coincidence. I use the POP Nico Robin to model the face.
More pictures and story on the making of this after the break.
